Fedora and nvidia


I just installed Fedora 37 on my laptop. Yes I know that 38 is out I will upgrade but can't for a bit. Anyways I may be wrong but I think I am running off the AMD graphics and not the nvidia graphics card.

The system Monitor for Graphics says AMD Radeon Graphics (rembrandt, LLVM 15.0.7, DRM 3.49, 6.2.12-200.fc37.x86_64)

# lspci -vnn | grep VGA
pcilib: Error reading /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:00:08.3/label: Operation not permitted
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GA106M [GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile / Max-Q] [10de:2520] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
06:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Rembrandt [Radeon 680M] [1002:1681] (rev c8) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Nvidias website told me this was the driver I needed https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv.../204639/en-us/

For those to scared to click on links I don't blame you I used the nvidia driver download tool for GeForce RTX 3060. That is the link to the result. Anyways I downloaded that and installed it. I now nave the Nvidia x server settings it lists the graphics card.

Am I just wrong or what am I doing wrong?

That works, but you really should have used RPMFusion.

In the NVIDIA settings it indicates GPU utilization as 0%. I would assume if it was being used even for a web browser it'd be higher.

It says GPU utilization is 0% in the NVIDIA settings. It seems to reason that it would be higher if it were used for anything more than mere online browsing.
